The reclamation of spaces, ideas, and paradigms by female-identified and informed bodies and queer bodies embodying feminist ethos must be made paramount at this moment in American Life. Half Straddle’s Here I Go, pt. 2 of You is an open work period and colloquy that encompasses rehearsals and showings of new theater and video work; the launch of an online journal of performance writing; public lectures; and communal zine-making activities that will act as accessible discussion periods. Here I Go, pt. 2 of You engages company members, peers, and their artistic heroes to expand critical artistic discourse to interrogate and reflect on how we codify; and to consider why various performances are made and ask what their making means at this time. The installation includes art work by John Davis and Heidi Hahn, and is designed by Parker Lutz and Tina Satter. Series runs March 8-March 18.Speaker Schedule: Tuesday, March 145pm Kaneza Schaal6pm Claudia Rankine + Casey Llewellyn8pm Jess Barbagallo

The story of the school, founded at downtown Trinity Church in 1709 and now one of the oldest schools in the US. In 1895 the school moved uptown, building on a series of lots on West 91st Street in the midst of the rows of town houses of turn-of-the-century Upper West Side. Learn how the school evolved from church-sponsored to ecumenical, from a charity school to a private school, from all-boys to coed and to a school that now prides itself on its diverse student body. Presenters will include Kevin Ramsey, Director of Communications, alumna and two parents of alumni--one a former teacher and the other a member of the first class of girls at the school and member of the Board of Trustees. A tour of the school will follow the presentation and is accessible to all; the tour includes stairs.

This illustrated lecture reveals the cross-cultural encounters—the collaborations, borrowings, and acts of literary larceny—that produced the Arabian Nights in European languages. Ranging from the coffeehouses of Aleppo to the salons of Paris, from colonial Calcutta to Bohemian London, Paulo Lemos Horta introduces audience to the poets and scholars, pilgrims and charlatans who made crucial but largely unacknowledged contributions to this most famous of story collections. After the talk, there is a discussion of the book with writer Lawrence Weschler, whose grandfather, the modernist composer Ernst Toch, based his final opera, The Last Tale, on Scheherazade’s ultimate yarn.

A breathtaking historical novel that recreates the intimate milieu around Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm from 1907 through the 1930s, a period of great human suffering and destruction and also of enormous freedom and creativity, a time when the remnants and artifices of the old word still mattered, and yet when art and the social sciences were pirouetting with successive revolutions in thought and style. Set in a time when many men in the upper classes in Europe were gay, but could not be so publicly, Jews Queers Germans revolves around three men: Prince Philipp von Eulenburg, Kaiser Wilhelm II's closest friend, who becomes the subject of a notorious 1907 trial for homosexuality; Magnus Hirschfeld, a famed, Jewish sexologist who gives testimony at the trial; and Count Harry Kessler, a leading proponent of modernism, and the keeper of a famous set of diaries which lay out in intimate detail the major social, artistic and political events of the day and allude as well to his own homosexuality. The central theme here is the gay life of a very upper crust intellectual milieu that had a real impact on the major political upheavals that would shape the modern world forever after.
